Breathing-meditation axial (4)
Observe the gaps in your breath. When your breath enters, observe it, just for a while, or a thousandth of a moment, without breathing being present-just before the breath comes up, before exhaling above it.
A person inhales the breath, and then there is a point, the breath stops, and then exhales. When the breath exhales, and then passes for a while, or a small part of a moment, the breath stops and then inhales.
Before you breathe in or exhale, you are not breathing for a while, and that moment may happen because when you are not breathing, you are no longer in this world.
Understand this: when you are not breathing, you are dead.
You are still, but you are dead, but this moment is momentarily short, you have never observed it.
The inhalation of Qi is regeneration, the exhalation of Qi is death; the outgoing Qi is synonymous with death, and the incoming Qi is synonymous with life, so every time you breathe, you are dying and then regenerate.
The gap between the two is very short, but keen, carefully observe and pay attention to the gap you feel above.
Then there is nothing more needed, you are lucky, you have realized that something has happened.
You don’t have to practice breathing and let it go.
Why use such a simple technique?
It looks so simple.
Use such simple techniques to understand the truth?
Understanding the truth means understanding that neither lives nor dies, and that the eternal factor that always exists.
You can know the exhalation of qi, you can know the absorption of qi, but you never know the space in between.
Try it out, suddenly you will reach that point-you can reach it: it is already there.
Nothing can be added to you or to your structure: it is already there, everything is already there, except for some awareness.
So, how to do this?
The first is to be aware of the inhalation of qi, watch it, and forget everything: just watch the inhalation of qi-the process.
When Qi touches your nostrils, feel it there, then let Qi enter, let Qi enter completely consciously, when you enter through Qi all the time, enter, do not leave Qi, do not run to the front, and do not fall behindJust enter with it.
Keep this in mind: don’t run to the front, don’t fall behind like a shadow, sync with it.
Qi and consciousness should become one. Qi enters and you also enter. Only in this way can it be possible to reach that point between exhaling and inhaling, which is not easy.
As the qi enters and then comes out through the qi: one in and one out, one in and one out.
Buddha especially likes to use this method, so this method has become a Buddhist method.
In Buddhist terminology, it is “Anana Panathi Yoga”, and Buddha’s enlightenment is based on this technique-only this.
If you keep practicing the awareness of breathing, the awareness of breathing, suddenly, one day, when you do n’t know, you will come to that gap.
Because your awareness will become sharp, deep, and intense, because your awareness will become with Qi-and the whole world will be left out.
Only the absorption and exhalation of your qi is your world, and is the whole stage of your consciousness activity-suddenly, you will definitely feel the void without breathing.
How can you still be unaware when you are breathing tighter and exercise, when there is no more air?
You will suddenly become aware that there is no breath there, and that moment will come, when you will feel that the breath is neither coming out nor entering, and the breathing has stopped completely.
In that pause was Samadhi.
